A look into Escheresque art

Another random inquiry. Somebody a while back mentioned something about something being “Escheresque” in one of my YT video comment threads. Had no fucking clue what they were talking about. Had to do a search and check Wikipedia, but I’ve just glimpsed it so far. Has to do with an artist named M. C. Escher.

I did come across some art images intended to illustrate this style.

Here’s another by Escher titled “Relativity”:

RelativityVery cool.

Another one by Escher titled” Ascending and Descending”:

Here’s an Escheresque piece titled “Stairways to Peace” by Patricia Saxton:
